(Sorry, I just needed to let that out!)
I just finished the first movement of my saxophone sonata today! It's really freakin' complicated, and working on it often made my head spin! Thank goodness for my trusty music theory textbook!
I'm really pleased with the work thus far. Though this first movement was EXCEEDINGLY DIFFICULT to write (I can't imagine how difficult it will be to LEARN!), it was a challenge well worth meeting! I defeat you, 1st movement!
Now it's on to the serenity of the 2nd Movement! This will be a gorgeous movement and a lot of fun to write. It will be akin to swimming in a secluded pond in the middle of a forest, long forgotten by human eyes. It will be a great contrast to the 1st Movement, which, fortunately or unfortunately, depending upon one's perspective, is rather like experiencing a magnitude 9.5 earthquake.
I can't wait to play this and to get it heard!
